 I am sooo happy it's Friday but disappointed that 
the weather is supposed to cool off quite a bit after having the most fabulous 
weather the past few days. Seems the weather is never as nice on the weekends
 when you would like to be in the garden or out in the mountains!! 
And speaking of Friday it is time for a new
 tutorial and challenge at FOSTV. Our tutorial is faux frosting, 
a fun  and very easy technique brought to us by Katie.

 If you pop over to the Challenge you will also find her tutorial. 
This technique can be used for a variety of things as you can see from
 the teams take on it. I actually used my for frosting on my cupcakes
. After coloring them I put the "frosting" on them and cut them out.
I like the little silver cupcake liners so I colored mine with greys
 and added a little silver glitter. I used the Dotted Swiss folder to
 emboss the card before adding my little plaid topper and bow. 
The buttons were added to each peak of the scallop. 
The little cupcakes and sentiment were layered and added.
 Quick and easy for a fun card.

This weeks winner receives this set.

Your frosting looks yummy, Davi. And, I also like how you did your cupcake liner...looks just like one with silver foil I used a couple nights ago.
Cute, cute the buttons.
